The Nile: Egypt's Great River With Bettany Hughes

Post by FarleyFlavors »

A new four-part series, starts on Channel 5 (UK) on June 14th at 2100.

"Historian Bettany Hughes explores the Nile's 900 miles and how it shaped Egypt."

I rather like Bettany Hughes so I'll be tuning in. At least she has a degree in ancient history so hopefully it'll be a bit more in-depth than your average Egypt documentary.

Plus...she's inordinately sexy, especially with her trademark black leather jacket on :lv

Yes....Bettany is well endowed, and not just in the academic sense ;)

I look forward to seeing this should be good if her previous TV documentaries are anything to go by.

Thanks for the heads up. Have enjoyed many of her historical series and her presentation style certainly enhances the programmes.

Life is not measured by the breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away.
